Life lately, around this flat
As many of you may know, I am currently Actively Seeking Employment and spend most of my day at home trying to not go completely mad. Here is a little peek into my daily routine:
I wake up early, get showered and dressed, come downstairs and make a cup of coffee. I drink my coffee whilst watching Breakfast News.
I spend almost the whole day on the sofa, looking for jobs. (I’m not on twitter all day, promise…!) Ras keeps me company, and plenty more cups of coffee are drunk. I listen to music quietly, in the background.
I can’t help but take little breaks to read a new book; it’s captivating and beautiful.
I pause for lunch, which lately has involved sesame seed bagels. They are so good! I fill them with houmous and salad, as well as plenty of sauerkraut. Or butter, marmite and a ton of salad and slices of gherkin!
For part of the afternoon I dedicate time to my blog; editing photographs, writing, drafting blog posts and answering emails. I also catch up with commenting on my favourite blogs, browse opportunity boards for briefs, internships and contribution opportunities.
In the afternoon I force myself to leave the house – even if only for thirty minutes – so that I can breath fresh air and clear my head. I walk around Brighton, go to a local shop to pick something up for dinner, or go down to the sea for some new inspiration.
In the evening I take a break from job-hunting – it’s like a job for me at the moment, and I need to separate some time to myself. Some evenings I will do an exercise class (I just started Dance Fit, which I love!) or enjoy some yoga at home, once a week I have the soup-run, and for the remaining days Trout and I will relax and eat dinner together, then watch a DVD or an episode of Breaking Bad snuggled up in bed. Lately we have been relaxing on the sofa with a glass of red wine with some beautiful music playing in the background, which is pretty much perfect.
So, that’s my life at the moment! How do you like to spend your time?
